Quite simply, this product is magic. I've never had hands so soft as I do now. I plan to never be without Skin food! The product absorbs a little slower than less effective hand creams, so keep that in mind when deciding to use this. But, even if simply used as a night treatment, this is the best hand cream around.

And yes, EWG rates this a 6. However, looking deeper, one realizes this reflects a flaw in EWG's rating system rather than a flaw in the product. For instance, the system does not differentiate chemical fragrance from essential oils. Because of this, the product is deemed unsafe, although essential oils are perfectly safe here. Worth doing your own research and looking at the beautiful ingredients yourself!

    Comments about Weleda Skin Food, 2.5 oz:

    I love a good thick body lotion/cream for my evening baths and showers, and this is definitely that. It takes a little work to get it blended into the skin so that it doesn't sit on top of it. It leaves the skin very soft and smells lovely. I must agree with other reviewers that there is a tacky texture, but I find that this is only the case when it is not blended into the skin completely. The only negative for me is the size of the tube, if you use this cream often it is definitely not going to last long. I only use it once a day, and after less than a month it is already almost finished. I still do think it is worth the price because of the benefits to the skin, I suppose you can cut it with oils or be creative in how you use it if the price of replacement is burdensome.

        I have tried several different cosmetics to find a cream to use on my neck that wasn't gone and dry by morning. This is a thick cream and utiiitarian but it does the work of keeping the skin on my neck soft and not wrinkled and thin.

          Comments about Weleda Skin Food, 2.5 oz:

          I have thin hands, not much subq fat, so I like to baby them a little with special hand creams to help plump them up a bit. But recent onset of menopause is making my poor hands look like a mummys. So I like to try different things. This stuff sounded promising.
          Sadly, it isn't. It's very greasy, forget about doing anything with your hands after applying it. I could deal with that if only it had some staying power - but it doesn't . Put it on when you go to bed and you'll wake up as if you'd never put anything on. It's just useless.
          On the plus side - it has a nice scent.
          Maybe someone with nice, plump, moist skin will do better with it. But if you have any real moisture problems with your hands or other - look elsewhere. Petroleum Jelly will work as well as this.
          I just threw it out finally. I didn't even think it good enough to use on my tush cheeks - which is what I usually do with lotion that I don't like for some reason. This stuff is too greasy.

              Comments about Weleda Skin Food, 2.5 oz:

              I use this on dry hands before bed and it works great. It moisturizes better than a lot of other products, and is not as super greasy as others ( although it's a little too heavy for me to wear during the day). Non irritating and nice smell, very mild.

                I was at a store where Walenda Skin food was available to try. Woman after woman tried a sample on their hands and decided to buy it. It has a thick texture and a fresh healthy smell. It is a nautral product. It is my favorite cream to apply at bedtime. I noticed they recommended this product on a popular tv show with MD advice.

                    This was disappointing after using other products of Weleda. It is full of lots of things I had not expected. It was not very good but I will use it up as "in a pinch" hand cream.

                    Comments about Weleda Skin Food, 2.5 oz:

                    My issue with this product has to do with the two tubes I received from drugstore.com without the standard Weleda packaging. Both tubes did NOT have the proper removable covers over the opening - they were not there. The first tube I recieved, I notified drugstore.com, and they sent me a replacement. The replacement also did not have the removable cover, so I gave up - I figured the third would be the same if I called to complain. I do not find this sanitary nor standard for this product. Nor is it something I feel comfortable using on my skin.

                    While overall I consider this product to be greasy, it does have its proper place in my rotation during the winter months. Sadly, I will not be repurchasing this here, as the lack of standard packaging bothers me.
